Argyle Gully Hepburn Springs
A beautiful 10 min walk commencing on 10 St Hepburn Springs, past the Red Star & Cosy corner cafe, over the suspended walk way to the Hepburn Spa
Cliffy's Emporium offers the largest range of local and regional produce, with an emphasis on seasonal and organic. We support the people who produce the food we eat and turn what we receive into interesting soups, salads and dinners every week.
Our vegetables come from the organic and almost organic farmers from around our region and sometimes when a friend or customer has a windfall we have the pleasure of using their produce too, returning the favour with a jar of quince jelly or pickled tomatoes or perhaps a barter for something they need in exchange for their produce. We enjoy the look on peoples faces and the knowledge that they share with us when they recognise an old favourite, it may be quince jelly, pickled onions or the bread and butter pudding, the taste of a fresh pine mushroom picked that morning or a medlar waiting to be used.
At Cliffy's we tweak peoples imaginations, new ideas with old favourites or old ideas that have been passed along by the last generation. Treasured memories of grandmas kitchen often brings forth a new but old recipe. Step inside and be transformed, enjoy, marvel, eat, drink and indulge your senses.
